January 10, 2018 – North Dakota Cap On Medical Malpractice Damages Is Unconstitutional, Judge Rules

A North Dakota judge has ruled the State’s law restricting pain and suffering damages in medical malpractice lawsuits is unconstitutional, the Bismarck Tribune reports. Current North Dakota statute limits the allowable amount of non-economic damages, which are intended to compensate for the experience of physical pain and emotional trauma, at $500,000. But Judge Cynthia Feland of the South Central Judicial District Court says this damages cap violates the equal protection rights of North Dakota citizens, since it arbitrarily flattens the damages available to all medical malpractice plaintiffs, including those who have suffered the most severe and disabling injuries.

Pennsylvania law doesn’t mandate a cap on noneconomic damages like pain and suffering. There’s no statutory limit to economic damages, either. Punitive damages, intended to punish egregiously negligent behavior, however, are limited to double the amount of compensatory damages.
